Probably every owner of your own home thought about how to transform the look of their homes. One of the best options is decorative plaster walls.
Of all types of decorative finishes, the most common is the so-called «coat». Not large financial costs and simple technological process, was the reason for the popularity of this type of plaster. No need to be a master with many years of experience to master the technique of decorating the facades. The process is absolutely not difficult, and You will soon discover this.
First of all, you need to find the tools that You will use in the process:
- a brush with soft bristles;
- tinting paste;
A modern mix of finishes possess a number of advantages over the cement that was used before. The durability, flexible coverage and low financial costs this is not a complete list of advantages of modern materials for covering facades.
When You choose a mixture, please note that there is both dry material and ready-to-use. Dry mix for the money will be cheaper enough to mix it with water as it will be immediately ready to use. But the disadvantages include the fact that all the dry mixture manufactured on the basis of cement, and this shows a reduction of the durability of plaster, and lack of elasticity.
Another thing is ready for it, You will have to overpay a little, but it’s worth it. Acrylic copolymers are the basis of the finished blend, this viscous mass copes with microcracks.
One of the great options of ready mix plaster is a structural aura putz coat. It is designed for such surfaces as concrete, drywall, masonry, plaster, plywood, chipboard. The mixture is very well established and has a lot of positive reviews.
Also does not hurt to pay for «plaster coat decor silicone». It is based consists of silicone and acrylic resin. This compound is characterized by its durability and water resistance.
There are several methods of applying the plaster, they all have their pros and cons, I propose to consider each of the methods.
Finish a small area can be performed using the old method that uses a stick and a broom, but it is effective only when working with a small area. This type of plaster under the coat is as follows: take a broom, dip it in the solution and beat on the stick in the direction of the wall, the result is a spray on desired surface. To last this long process, and most importantly you need to have a lot of experience that would apply the mixture evenly.
This method of applying the plaster is quite old method and belongs to the category «antiquated». Few people nowadays uses it, but we have to consider it.
And so we will need a brush and a small plank of wood. The brush should be dipped into the solution, then near the wall, which will be applied to the coat, turn the brush and hold it with a plate for himself, as a result, the wall will get the desired spray.
The following method of plaster under the coat takes less time and it is the following: first you need to apply a thin layer of the mixture on a surface, then while the grout is still wet, take a textured roller and hold it over the surface, a roller will leave «pile». The complexity of the method lies in the fact that, to obtain using a roller a uniform texture is difficult, therefore as in the previous method can not do without the skilled hands of a master.
Fast enough to do the job, you can use the compressor for the money spent for its purchase, will be repaid in full saved time. The image is more smooth and rounded. The texture is fairly easily regulated by concentration of the solution, if you make the mixture more liquid, the droplets become smaller, resulting in a smaller porosity the surface.
If you have insufficient funds to buy the compressor to run under the plaster coat by using a special machine. The process is more manual work, but the result is almost the same, if You have applied the plaster with a compressor.
The typewriter is a container, which is filled with a solution. Inside the vessel are the plates, which by rotating the handle about the dirty solution, then resting in the special emphasis produce splashes to the surface. This work is quite laborious, but the coat turns out nice and uniform.
This method is one of the most popular technologies of applying the plaster manually. Despite the fact that the grid used for quite a long time, it has not lost its popularity today.
To get started we’ll need actually own a grid with small cells. The mesh should be touching the wall, and then with a trowel apply the mixture to the surface through the mesh. Then the grid is removed, to form the layer of plaster under the coat.
Almost always dry mixes are sold with the addition of the dye. Tinting pastes provides the possibility to choose the color of the plaster under coat. The base colors are dry mixtures of gray and white color, if You want to paint a coat in a darker tone, you’d rather have a mixture of gray and for creating bright colors take white mixture.
Call a better solution with the help of a specialist, because it is possible not to guess the proportions and You will not get the desired shade.
The plaster under the coat you just paint facade paint, the uniformity of paint application in this way is achieved much easier. The main advantage of paint is the ability to repeatedly repaint the coat, but the cracks in the plaster, stands out the original color of the solution, because of this, many make a choice in favor of kolerovaniya.
To learn the process of applying plaster can absolutely everyone, it is not a difficult job. First and foremost, you must have tools and accessories for plaster application (broom, stick, cushion, compressor or a special machine). Do not forget also about the tools that You will need when working on the surface finish where You will make a fur coat (chisel, hammer, brush, trowel, shovel and capacity where it will zameshivaetsya solution).
Decorating the walls with plaster occurs in several stages, each of them has particular importance. Therefore, it is not advisable to neglect even the slightest detail in the work.
First, remove cobwebs and dust, and then disappeared traces of the old coating (if any) further, if the wall surface is smooth with a hammer and chisel put a notch.
The solution is better bonded to the surface, if we pre-apply the primer. With the purchase of the primer composition will not have any problems, he is in every hardware store, and is not expensive. To apply the primer need a brush once, but very carefully. For very rough walls is better to use a sprayer, thanks to him, the primer will get into every crevice that will allow to save material.
After complete drying of the soil, begin to apply the plaster. The consistency of the solution should resemble sour cream. Is applied to the solution in three stages, the first layer is better to let does and level master, as it requires experience. After the first layer dries, carefully apply the second and then proceed to the coat.
